This jewelry box was a $4 Thrift Store find by my daughter. It sure threw me back to my childhood. My mom had one just like it when I was a girl and I remember pulling out the little drawer and organizing her jewelry in the different velvety compartments.But, boy, was this one ugly. The metallic gold/red/teal fabric was...ewww. I asked her if I could make it a project and we'd paint it and switch out the fabric.
I removed the hardware, popped the fabric/mirror off to re-upholster, and lightly sanded everything. Then I painted with 2 coats of Valspar Well Water in satin finish.
